Assigning Game Numbers and Locations
The game numbers on the brackets for single-elimination, double-elimination, and multilevel tournaments were assigned with the assumption that there is one location.
Common Issues With Groups
Working in a group is usually a good way to get things done, especially in recreation and leisure settings. Bringing together diverse people with their own opinions and ways of doing things can create a rich environment for success. However, traps and pitfalls can occur; leaders can avoid them by understanding some of the warning signs and responding accordingly.

Traditional Face-to-Face Versus E-Leadership
In the technology-rich environment in which we live, our key interpersonal and professional encounters are not likely to be solely face-to-face or virtual.

Values, Beliefs, and Emotional Intelligence
If it is not clear yet in this chapter, let me be unequivocal now. Leadership - your leadership - is about you.

What is Outdoor Adventure Education?
The English word adventure comes from the French term aventure, which evolved from the Latin term adventurus, which means simply “about to arrive” but which over time has come to connote an exciting event that contains elements of risk and/or danger and where the outcome is uncertain.
